1

The movement which results in the change of place or location is called ____

locomotion

2

Three basic types of movements are exhibited by the cells of human body, namely (3)

amoeboid
ciliary
muscular.

3

eg of cells which show pseudopodial movement

WBCs and macrophages

Muscular Movement: In humans, movement of limbs, jaw, tongue and other body parts occur due to
contraction of muscles. The muscles contract and relax rhythmically to produce movement and are used
effectively for locomotion.

5

tru/false:
all locomotions are movements but all movements are not locomotions

6

Muscle is a specialised tissue originating from the germ layer, ___

mesoderm

7

The muscular tissue is made up of specialised cells called ___

myocytes

8

A human body is made up of ___ muscles

639

9

They make up about __-__percent of body weight in adult human.

40-50

10

The myocytes have an ability to contract. They can shorten by __-__of their length due to contraction
and then return to their original length.

1/3 to 1/2

11

The property of shortening and then returning to relaxed state of the muscle fibre is called __

elasticity

12

A muscle is covered by a sheath of connective tissue called ___

epimysium.

13

Inside the epimysium, a muscle has
many muscle fibres arranged in bundles called

fasciculi

14

Each fasciculus is
surrounded by a sheath of connective tissue called

perimysium

15

The muscle fibres are parallel to each other in
the fasciculus and surrounded by a connective tissue called

endomysium

16

The muscle bundles are bound
together by a common collagenous sheath of connective tissue called

fascia

17

smooth muscles are found in (6)

posterior region of oesophagus,
stomach,
intestine,
lungs,
urinary bladder
and urinogenital tract

18

Muscle fibre is covered
by a plasma membrane called

sarcolemma

19

muscle fibres are basically __

muscle cells

20

sarcolemma has some invaginations called __
